Save Seeds to Plant Seeds

Seeds drying on newspaper
This is the first time that I'm collecting seeds from my own produce. It will be exciting to saw them next year! So far I collected peas, beans, nasturtium, calendula, tagetes, carrots, sunflower, pumpkin, tomato and spinach. Soon to collect seeds from chard, onions, squash, radishes, mizuna cabbage and swedish soybeans.
I also collected seeds from various wild growing bee lowing flowers. The nature is so generous indeed. 
As a self-sufficient householder it is of utmost importance to learn how to and when to collect seeds as well as how to store them. I make sure to write on each seed bag the year the seed is from since some seeds cant live forever. Old seeds often don't germinate.
Save seeds to plant seeds!
